Refreshed review of LDB’s distribution centre underway

Last June, the BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) welcomed the results of Deloitte Canada’s assessment of the LDB distribution centre in Delta and recommendations on how to improve operations. The review was one of several recommendations handed down by the Business Technical Advisory Panel (BTAP), that was tasked with improving B.C.’s liquor policies for both industry and consumers. Deloitte’s report can be found here.

Now that operational and efficiency improvements have been made at the Delta Distribution Centre (DDC) to address the identified concerns, Deloitte will be conducting a refreshed review with respect to the BTAP recommendations to assess the extent to which the recommendations are still valid in today’s environment.

The LDB is grateful to those customers and stakeholders who contributed input and feedback to date.

This refreshed review is an important step in the assessments of LDB’s distribution centre in Delta and process for managing non-stocked wholesale product (NSWP) as recommended by BTAP in 2018 and findings from the review will be used to help inform LDB and government decisions.

Over the coming weeks the review team will be reaching out to only those customers and stakeholders who contributed to the initial review to obtain further feedback. Thank you for your continued collaboration.
